The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    We have an Android app waiting in the wings and I'm looking for a volunteer tester - someone who uses more than the basic ARRSE features.<br><br><br>

    If you are also looking for someone who is an absolute 'pooter biff to see if the app is ARRSEer proof :) I'm yer man!
  11. I'm pretty crap when it comes to apps, generally that's why my phone send notifications at 2am as I forgot to try to turn those bits off.
    I've got a Samsung Galaxy Ace. Froyo 2.2 (migth be 2.1 though, I can check somehow).

    Plus it'll really help the spelling in my posts go up the creek (it's prety lame at the mintue) becuase I use swype and there's nothing like swype to say what you really didn't mean to!

    Wil you be able to pay through paypal for the app? I just have never paid for an app in 8 months I've had my phone, but an Arrse one I WOULD.

    Thanks for all the replies and I apologise for being so slow in coming back to you. Instead of a load of PMs and app emailing, here it is for all to try:


    You will have to tell your android device to allow applications from outside the Market to install this. On my HTC Desire, you install HTC Sync on your PC, plug your phone into the USB cable, then on the PC just double click on the file above to install it on the phone.

    This is an app from the makers of the ARRSE software, the well respected VBulletin, which is then ARRSE branded and made to work specifically with this site. I add that so that you know it's not some dodgy cheapo software that will kill your phone or steal your secrets.

    Any problems and comments here please.
  13. Thanks Boss. Loaded up a treat, nice easy login seems the business. Will have a serious play over the hols and try to destroy it.
  14. Looks good. Posting from it now.

    Couldn't find a search function.

    And what are the two buttons on the left above "Add title"?
  15. I'll give it a go. Android HTC Desire HD. Only use basic features on the phone, as everything is a bit tricky. It needs an app.

    Use my phone for stuff more and more these days as most paces I go have good wi-fi or 3G signals
